SALT LAKE CITY — A man from Australia might get a tattoo of Utah Jazz forward and fellow countryman Joe Ingles's face because of Ingles' Jazz teammate Donovan Mitchell.
On Wednesday, Aussie John Samson tweeted that he'd get a tattoo of Ingles if Mitchell "liked" the tweet.
Mitchell happily obliged after Ingles made him aware of the tweet, and quite the back-and-forth ensued.
Even ESPN NBA reporter Adrian Wojnarowski chimed in.
When someone questioned whether Samson will actually go through with it now that the conditions of the deal have been met, he had this to say.
NFL already looking for the next Taysom Hill?
Former BYU quarterback Taysom Hill, who broke into the NFL as an undrafted free agent, has in a unique way made his mark on the league with how he fills a number of very different roles for the New Orleans Saints.
A feature written by The Athletic's Greg Auman earlier this week detailed how the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to new undrafted free agent Nick Fitzgerald to fill a role similar to Hill's.
“I have no problem being a quarterback, but also going to run a route, take a jet sweep, go run down on special teams,” Fitzgerald is quoted as saying. “I’d be ecstatic if they looked at me and said, ‘You can return kicks like they let Taysom Hill.’ I would be really excited to do that.”
